The Hunger Games

What does Peeta mean when he says that 'the capitol cannot own him, that he's just a piece of their games'? What does Katniss mean when she says she knows exactly what valid point Peeta said on the roof the night before the games?

Peeta is referencing the fact that he is not simply a part of anyone's game, but rather a member of humanity.

I'm not sure what you mean in the second part of your question. On the roof, the night before the games, Peeta reassures Katniss that his public pledge was meant to be a compliment rather than a form of manipulation. She doesn't even address the personal remarks, but they do go on to have a conversation about the games themselves.

Thank you Jill.

I think Peeta means that he wants to be himself and not what Snow wants him to be.
